All these big dreams. BD will be lucky if they proceed to the super eight stage. One year is not enough to prepare for a competition like this,remember, other countries are also preparing well and BD has the worst bowlers in the world.( especially when their bowlers cannot learn to bowl properly,)
Their batting may be improving, but bowling and fielding wins matches and they are horrible in the bowling dept.
They are playing in their own backyard and it will be shameful if they get knocked out of the competition in the early stages, and notproceed to the super eight stage. Also, they are in a very strong group.
I hope Siddons and the BCB are not sitting on their laurels and try to address this problem with a great degree of urgency. They need good bowling and fielding coaches ASAP.
